Stagecoach Solihull

Solihull Stagecoach opened in 1997 and many of our students have gone on to achieve great opportunities in TV, film and professional touring productions such as Les Mis, Matilda, Scrooge and many more. We pride ourselves on offering a safe environment where children can receive quality training in the performing arts. We welcome children with no previous experience and all we ask is that they are enthusiastic and keen to learn. Students participate in all three performing arts disciplines: drama classes, dance classes and singing classes - helping to develop confidence, physical awareness, communication and articulation - as well as being educational and fun. We offer examinations with Trinity College London, London College of Music and LAMDA.
We operate from Tudor Grange school and our classes run for 3 hours 6-16 yrs  or 90 mins 4-6 yrs and 45 mins 2-4 yrs during the school term.

In  addition to our regular singing and dancing classes, we offer LAMDA exams in Acting, LCM exams in Singing, written reports,  specialist West End workshops, audition techniques and professional representation for film, TV and Theatre work
